raises a few eyebrows. causes some finger pointing and reminds us of the multibillion-dollar campaign we just went through. good morning from new york city. it's friday, december 7th, 2012. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. you should always remember this is a day that lives in infamy and if you don't know why, ask your parents or your grandparents to explain. let's get right to my first reads of the morning. as the republican party picks up the pieces and searches for the next generation of leaders, one of the conservative movements most influential icons of late and inside the senate, south carolina's jim demint, stunned his colleagues by resigning to become a full-time political activist. in effect, the ceo of the conservative movement. just two years into his second term demint is leaving the senate to become president of the heritage foundation where he was greeted yesterday with a standing ovation. >> this literally feels like i just walked in the front door of my own house. this organization is in a position to do more to save our country than any organization that i'm
to play the blame game. this is about to put us over the edge. >> perry, i want to start with you. if perception is reality and the blame is going to matter to somebody, which side is it really going to matter to? ivities the blame is on both sides. what's driven this whole process is republicans are very opposed to -- just the republicans who will vote for any tax increase. we learned last week from the plan b vote. once we go over the cliff, republicans are ready for a tax cut, not an increase. right now that's what the big challenge is. >> chip, is that the biggest strategy here, get to the third and pass the third, the new congress comes in, boehner danger doesn't exist anymore, his speakership stays in place and grover norquist gives a thumbs up to up? >> i don't think that was the strategy a week ago. i think the speaker was trying to put the deal together, as we've seen the senate not -- i think that may become the strategy. i've always thought they would wait until the last hour, put a band eight on it, but wait until the iii so they can vote for a tax cut makes sense as w
trading paper all day saturday, but the only big news, mcconnell cared to share with us, in the state he represents, kentucky, louisville beat the university of kentucky by three and meanwhile, the officially republican weekly address features another republican senator explaining once again why a deal before monday night's deadline is so important. >> at a time when our federal debt's topped 16 trillion dollars, it's been more than three years since the senate democrat leaders passed a budget. if you fail a plan, you plan to fail and that's exactly what they've been doing. >> reporter: three o'clock this afternoon is when senator reid and mcconnell will tell their caucuses the details of the deal that they've made and we should get a better gauge of running off the cliff after the meetings. if the senators don't like it, it's a bad sign and president obama will left his hawaiian vacation to come and work on this, says if we do go off the cliff once again it would be very bad for the economy. >> we just can't afford a politically self-inflicted wound to our economy. the economy is growi

"newsroom" starts now. >>> good morning. thank you so much for joining me. i'm carol costello. smoke 'em if you got 'em. recreational marijuana is officially legal in washington state. shall we say a rather mellow celebration at seattle's space needle? pot smokers lit up like it was new

"the rachel maddow show" starts right now. ezra cline filling in for "the rachel maddow show" tonight. >> good evening. a dreary december day turned out to be full of news today including big news out of the supreme court. and one of the coolest pictures ever having a big revival. but we begin with important news out of washington. for all the squabbling politicians and the whining pundits, we can announce to you tonight, right here, right now, there's a budget deal that's becoming clear. our long national nightmare might almost, and i repeat, it's washington, almost be over. this is kind of like one of those kids games where you have to look at a picture that looks like nonsense until your eyes filter out the garbage and you can finally see the sailboat. that's what's going on in washington. you have to filter out the garbage. take yesterday for example. i don't tune into c-span2 for comedy, just because it's good television. but the senate was

. we'll take a hard line here and make you come to us. i think the white house is now looking for a response from the hill. if you don't like this, what's your offer. >> okay, so meredith based on what he's saying and speculating about this there may be two ways to look at it. you've got the president who just wants to use this as a starting point for negotiations, despite david saying we want the republicans to come to them. or the president feels he has an election mandate and he's operating from a position of strength. do you know which one it is? >> i actually don't think those things are mutually exclusive, lakers lak alex. he ran as he did in 2008 on raising those top rates on taxes on income over $250,000. so i think this first offer was his way of saying this is the position i'd like to start from. and then the republicans are going to have to show that they're going to be able to meet him in a way that makes sense in order to get a deal before the end of the year. >> david, in your latest article you write "any political negotiation involves a good deal of bluster, pa
bash, thank you very much for us on the hill. >>> as i mentioned at the top of the hour, we're talking about egypt. we are keeping a close eye on this potential powder keg. take a look. look at the masses. this is cairo. two groups of protesters have been clashing. this is just outside of the presidential palace, tossing rocks, lobbing fireworks and molotov cocktails at one another. we have gotten word that masked men set fire to the headquarters of the muslim brotherhood. you have protesters furious about president mohamed morsi, his power grab and hastily passed draft constitution that they say leaves them, the people, out of the process. the other group called in by the pro-morsi islamist group, the muslim brotherhood, to show support for the president. it was the muslim brotherhood headquarters that have apparently been set on fire. >>> a family living underground to avoid bombs in syria. cnn takes you inside their chilling reality. i'm brooke baldwin. the news is now. >>> a little girl in the middle of a nasty custody fight. today, it goes to the nation's highest court. >>> and th
, is there anything that's going to avert getting us over -- going over the cliff, and the oddsmakers in washington really feel at this point, probably not, we're probably going over that cliff, john. >> that is not cheerful news, jessica. >> sorry. >> dana, what are you hearing? we just reported earlier that senators reid and mcconnell, they just met, but now they're saying, it wasn't about the fiscal cliff. what else is there to talk about? >> reporter: no. i think we know exactly what their new year's eve plans will be, we're going to be right here. senator reid himself said that they did not discuss that. and it seems to be that that is an indication, at least to republicans here on capitol hill, that it is the president's move next to make more clear what jessica is talking about. that the president has said publicly, he wants to do as kind of that stopgap, scaled down version. in fact, mitch mcconnell himself said in the hallway, just moments ago, that he does expect to go to the white house, as jessica just alluded to. he expects to do that tomorrow. they haven't gotten a formal invitation t
, but the regime surrounded it completely cutting us off from the world, nothing was allowed in and out. even water and bread was cut off. today we obtained dough. >> reporter: they were able to open a bakery around 1:00 p.m., and the rockets struck just hours later. as nearby hospitals quickly filled up, activists began pleading for help. >> we are joined by the reporter from beirut. this looks crazy. it looks crazy to me. do we know who is responsible for this? >> reporter: suzanne, it is absolutely horrific, and just so many grizzly details started to emerge in the hours after the attack. now, the residents in that town that we spoke with said that they believed they were targeted because that town had been liberated by the free syrian army because there's a lot of anti-regime sentiment there. they believe they were targeted deliberately by the syrian regime. syria's government, however, today posted a statement on their syrian news agency website in which they blamed this on the actions of terrorists. that's the terminology they use for rebel fighters, opposition fighters in syria. they say tha
